Memorial Day-Weekend Gathering

Hope you’re getting ready for a long weekend and the official begining of summer!  If you or your friends are hosting a cookout, here are some fun ideas to get you started.
If you are the host you’ll need some cute styling ideas, right?!  Above, are some easy and inexpensive suggestions using wrapped vases, colorful flowers, and table cloth painted with flag stripes.  Keep the drinks icy cold and easy to grab, in a pretty garden urn.
Embelish other necessities with crafty pinwheels, flags, or umbrellas.
Need a delicious side dish to bring to a pot luck?  Try one of these easy recipes for potato or pasta salad, from Kraft.
Nothing better than a sweet treat that is light, and pretty too.  Here, 2 ideas for strawberries, and of course, everyone’s favorite cupcake!  Have fun celebrating Memorial Day!

    Your post made me wish I was hosting a party this weekend! Maybe the 4th of July! So fun! Love the red white and blue strawberries and the garden urn with the bottles of red drinks. :)
